Comment/Description

The course will teach the basics of Matlab and introduce tools that are often used in Psychology and Neuroscience. You will learn the skills needed to understand existing Matlab code and to develop your own Matlab programs.

The course consists of two parts: 

* a more theoretically oriented lecture with practical examples (2h/week),
* a tutorial in which the weekly homework exercises will be discussed (2h/week).

In order to be able to follow the lecture contents throughout the course period, it will be mandatory that the participants invest significant time into the weekly exercises.


Associated Course

After this Matlab course, in the second half of the semester, we will offer an associated course at the DPZ, in which you will be able to apply and intensify the learned skills. The course on Psychophysics by Prof. Stefan Treue will provide you with an opportunity to gather hands on experience in handling and analyzing data that you collected in your own experiments.
